Trello · May 1st 2018
Customer support at Trello is different.
To start with, we let our customers decide if they want to pay us or not. Seriously. If our customers are not amazingly happy, they get their money back with no questions asked. Our front line staff are empowered to make our customers happy. Usually, it means tapping a broad range of resources, whether that’s making sure you have all the right software, or working directly with an engineer to troubleshoot a case. You’ll have what you need to get the job done.
You will not be a queue monkey. Sure, we need to get back to customers via email—that will always be there—but support is so much more than grinding through an inbox. This is a real problem-solving job. You’ll have an incredible amount of autonomy in determining how best to contribute your talents and skills to Trello. Think a short video will help customers get started? Make it. Want to write a script to help a customer with the API? Go for it. There’s plenty of room for creativity and technical exploration when it comes to better serving our customers.
The other side of support is working with the other teams at Trello. All of our teams—engineering, marketing, sales, etc—benefit from support’s role in working directly with customers. It will be your job to figure out how we can serve them as effectively as possible. This is no small task, especially when communication is happening asynchronously across timezones. For example, when working with the engineering team, you need to know when a bug can stay under the radar versus when you should sound the alarm.
What you’ll be doing
We don’t want people to just use Trello, we want them to love it. We’re looking to add a person to our support team who is friendly, helpful, and already loves Trello. Your top priority will be to transform our users into super-fans. You’ll do this by:
We use a variety of tools to ensure fluid communication between our customers, support, and the product team. These include email, social media, written documentation, video, internal chat, and Trello itself. Your ability to listen to customers, identify common themes, and communicate clearly will be incredibly valuable to our users and our team.
One or more of the following skills would also contribute to your role on the support team:
